The April 2, 1949, issue of Boxoffice reported that Moses Sliman had opened his 500-seat Murr Theatre at Osceola on March 25. The Murr Theatre became part of the Kerasotes circuit on New Year’s Day 1976, as reported in the January 5 issue of Boxoffice.

The September 23, 1939, issue of Boxoffice gives the opening date of the Joy Theatre as September 10 that year, and at the time the Murr opened the Joy Theatre was still operating. The Joy was in operation at least as late as 1953.
